What’s the Best Type of Birthday Cake To Give Your Wife?

A birthday cake with “wow” value.

You might be wondering what kind of cake is best for your wife’s birthday. With an endless variety of cakes available, you’ll never run out of choices although vanilla with cream icing is my personal favorite. It really depends on you or your wife’s preference though. Here are some ideas.

  • Chocolate cake is always a classic favorite.
  • Brightly colored lemon, orange, and butter cakes are perfect for birthdays that fall on the summer months.
  • If your wife’s birthday falls during the autumn months, a fruit cake or pumpkin cake would be a perfect cake to celebrate a birthday.
  • If your wife doesn’t have a sweet tooth, a mocha or coffee cake would be perfect.
  • For a truly romantic and sensual birthday, add strawberry toppings.
  • For something nostalgic, why not the cake you had on your wedding day?

Also, if you’re running a bakery or cake business, have these suggested messages printed and put in a folder. After all, most guys aren’t poets. These will be handy if you have customers who are unsure about what to put on their birthday cakes.
